Ross’s experience and knowledge in the Burleigh area is second to none.

Josie Jones Burleigh Waters

Ross was great from day one. Set up a plan and came through. Great knowledge of the area and market and very easy to deal with. Will definitely use Ross again in the future.

Seller - N. Lum - 34 Tours Way, Burleigh Waters - January 2018

"Top Agent Who Knows His Market". Ross has proved his knowledge of the local real estate market to be excellent. Following tentative enquiries, once we had given Ross approval to market our home he, with his support team managed to advertise, promote and conduct inspections all within three days. In three weeks a sale contract was completed. Although the asking price was not fully achieved, the negotiations conducted by Ross on our behalf increased the initial offer to a figure that we were happy to accept.

Sellers - G & R. Hoffman - Sellers 129 Dunlin Drive, Burleigh Waters - January 2018

ross always was available and i felt confident that he would sell our property

ashley and lindy wilson

Ross is a professional agent in every way. Thank you Ross for your respectful negotiations during the sale of the property at Robina. A big thank you also to Sandy Tibbits and Shanna Ford for their professional supportive care given to me.

Di Donnelly - Buyer Review - October 2017

Very professional approach in every way. Ross gave us great advise in the refurbishment of the unit and also provided some good contacts to actually under take the work. The person who bought the property was exactly the profile which Ross suggested we target so all up we could not be happier with Ross as our agent.

Seller - 2/14 Northwestern Court, Varsity Lakes - October 2017

I would like to sincerely thank Ross Paterson for his professionalism with the sale of my home. What a fantastic result in such a short time.. 6 days and record sale for the area!

How very fortunate I was to choose Ross and his team to market and sell my home. They are most professional and supportive in what can be a stressful experience. In my opinion no other real estate office comes anywhere close! Do yourself a favour!

Mrs N Fleet - Seller of 2/2 Rice Place, Varsity Lakes

This the third time in the last 10 years that I have used Ross as a Real Estate agent and he has always exceeded my expectations with his professionalism and easygoing nature to the whole sales process. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone interested in purchasing or selling within the Burleigh area.

Phil Barham, Burleigh Heads

My previous thoughts are above. I found Ross a great help in all my dealings with him.

Jean Walsh Surfers Paradise

Did exactly what I wanted.

Judith Aspel Burleigh Waters

L J Hooker Burleigh Heads were managing rental agents for my property from May 1997 until July 2016, and I have known Ross since in our previous lives working in the banking industry on the Gold Coast in the early 1990s. I was impressed with his local knowledge, marketing strategy, sound advice and final sale price result. His team's prompt liaison with my solicitor, body corporate and insurer made for a seamless and smooth sale process, and I was kept informed at all times. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ross and his team for residential real estate matters.

Peter Langton, Toowoomba Q

Excellent from start to finish

Scott Ritchie

We have worked with Ross before and he is the ONLY agent that we would ever work with again. Ross is a professional and genuine person and he went out of his way to make the whole sales process a relatively easy one - despite how stressful it can be at times. He is 'no nonsense' in the genuine sense and we appreciated his lovely nature whilst we worked together selling our home. We can only say positive things about Ross and his L.J.Hooker Burleigh team. We would also like to add that Sandi assistant Ross in the sales and customer relation process and she is an absolute pleasure to work with. Thank you Sandi. We would highly recommend Ross and his team to any family and friends. If you need a good and genuine agent then please consider Ross's services.

Ross and Sandy were wonderful - they were so helpful and their work effective. Their admin team was also very helpful and capable. They made this challenging process easy and produced a great result for us.

Sellers - 1/3 Pontoon Place, Varsity Lakes - March 2016

Ross Paterson was engaged to sell my property in the last quarter of 2015 and once again, within a few months, he sold the house with excellent results. Whilst I am overseas, Ross will be actively searching for the perfect home for me to purchase. I have every confidence in Ross because over the past few years I can honestly say that I appreciate his integrity. I can count on him to do the very best for his clients. I have observed the way in which Ross treats both his prospective sellers, purchasers and staff, always with utmost respect and honesty. It is not surprising that he has such an extensive client base, a great deal of them through word of mouth. Ross provides leadership for his team, through encouragement, example and provision of resources to carry out the tasks that he expects of them. He is clearly dedicated to supporting and mentoring them in every possible way. Ross has earned an excellent reputation on the Gold Coast, making him highly sought after. I have no hesitation in recommending Ross Paterson to sell your property and to find you a new home. You can always count on Ross to do the right thing.

Seller - Dr Marie-Claire Patron - March 2016

Ross was lovely, helpful and approachable. We had many dealings with Sandy aswell. She was exceptionally helpful with all aspects of the sale and we would really love to thank her for her help and attention. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Sandy's approach is very personable and enthusiastic. We would recommend this team and office anytime to friends. Having dealt with many real estate agents during our property searches prior to buying, we know that this office provides exceptional service and actually cares about their clients. This however is not the case with many other real estate agents onthe coast. Therefore this team and office should be highly commended for their services. Tracey the receptionist is fantastic too! Thank you all so much! Nothing needed for improvement. Keep up the excellent work, care and attention you give. We would like to thank you for the beautiful gift pack provided when we picked up the keys to our new house. It was a very thoughtful touch.

Buyers: S. & R. Lardner - 1/3 Pontoon Place, Varsity Lakes - March 2016

Big thanks to Ross Paterson of L J Hooker Burleigh Heads We have much pleasure in putting pen to paper to thank Ross Paterson of L J Hooker's Burleigh Heads Branch for his outstanding effort of selling our much loved Burleigh Waters home for thousands of dollars more than other Local Real Estate Agents valued it at and he did so in under twelve hours of it appearing on the Net. Ross's services thankfully did not stop or start there, he was more than prepared to go that extra mile and find us new accommodation suitable to our needs. A task that proved to be much harder than we had anticipated owing to the lack of ability by numerous Estate Agents to understand the needs of a partly disabled person, that is until Ross came to our rescue. Agents prior to Ross seemed more interested in achieving a quick sales rather meet our need to find accommodation suitable to Margaret increasing inability to do the tasks she had been undertaking for a lifetime. Ross on the other hand went to great deal of trouble in finding an Apartment that would meet Margaret's requirements and yet be suitable to Brian's outdoor lifestyle, not an easy task. Ross not only found us this Apartment he continued on to find and recommend trade-persons capable of doing the renovation work we required in a cost effective and workmanship manner, something we were unlikely to achieve in the short period of time available between buying and selling. So it is a very big thanks Ross and the staff at L J Hookers Burleigh Heads from us with an additional special thanks to Ross’s personal assistant Shanna who went out of her way in helping us both through a difficult period of change.

Sellers: Brian & Margaret Springett

Ross Paterson was engaged to sell our property in June, 2014 and within three months, he had not only sold it with excellent results, but also immediately found a beautiful home for me to purchase. I was immediately impressed by the way Ross approached people, always treating them with the utmost respect and honesty, be they prospective sellers or purchasers. Ross provides leadership of his team through encouragement, mentoring, training and provision of managerial expertise in Real Estate, an area in which he has extensive experience. He is eclectic in his talents and his wealth of knowledge in the property market on the Gold Coast in particular, has earned him an excellent reputation, making him highly sought after. Ross has shown himself to be enterprising, committed and principled. He is in a position calling for responsibility, diplomacy, mediation, time management and people skills. He is extremely well organised and has highly developed time-management skills. I can without hesitation or equivocation, recommend Ross Paterson to sell your property and to find you a new home because he builds agency in his business relationships and is dedicated to supporting all staff to continue to develop and extend best practices.

Seller: Marie-Claire Patron, Ph.D - April 2015

When my wife and I decided to sell our investment property in Varsity Lakes we anticipated a stressful period ahead as the property required a complete renovation prior to sale. After interviews with three real estate agents, we were impressed with the presentation made by Ross Paterson, and his offer to advise and organise much of the renovation, and appointed him as our agent. Following this appointment, our renovation proceeded quickly with little delay using many of the tradesmen suggested by Ross. Ross and his staff assisted at every stage and when complete also suggested a market strategy that proved successful beyond our expectations, with a sale going to contract on the initial weekend opened for inspection. After contract, we were guided and assisted with all the necessary paper work and settlement was made on the scheduled date. Due to the professionalism of Ross Paterson and his staff at LJ Hooker Burleigh Heads, our experience in renovation and sale proved to be straightforward and well managed, with the absence of stress and an agreeable final result. We were extremely satisfied with the excellent level of service provided and recommend Ross and his firm to any property vendors or purchasers.

Sellers: Morris & Wendy Uttley - May 2015

I would like to formally thank Ross and the team for the sale of my Q1 property at 508/9 Hamilton Avenue Surfers Paradise. It was my first property that I owned and sold. Ross spent a lot of time with me in preparing the apartment for the market and the sale of Q1. Not only did he get good market value on the sale price, but he found the perfect buyer for that apartment style. I am very pleased to know that the buyer us satisfied and enjoying the Q1 apartment and it's amenities. I would recommend anyone who is interested in finding the perfect home or looking to sell a property, to work with the team at LJ Hooker Burleigh Heads
